My name is Mikki and I’m a television junkie.
But here’s the thing: I’ve never seen a single episode of The Real Housewives of anywhere. I’ve never seen Survivor. I don’t watch many of the most popular shows. I’m not a TV snob (or maybe I am!), I just like what I like. And it all began with TV being my baby-sitter as a child. But that’s another post. Or a therapy session…
Anyhoo, now that it’s September, we’re about to get a mega-dose of fall line-up shows and I am super-excited! Yes, I’m looking forward to Modern Family and The New Girl. But I also look forward to 60 Minutes. And SNL! And Law & Order: SVU! I’m really buzzing now!
But I digress. The above photo was taken in Roslyn, Washington. That’s where most exterior shots were filmed for Northern Exposure. And Northern Exposure is one of my favorite shows of all time. I still want to live there – in the show, I mean. I still want to know (most of) those characters.
And that’s the power of successful telly, isn’t it? Making us laugh, making us care. Making us feel some sort of connection. That’s why I’m a TV junkie. And that’s why I’ll always own that addiction.
I hope I remember to share that last part at my group meeting. Could be helpful.
